Biography

Calmbirth Classes at Sydney Adventist Hospital (the San)

Due to its credibility as the leading childbirth education program in Australia and abroad, Calmbirth classes are available at Sydney Adventist Hospital (the San).

About the Calmbirth Educator, Jenny Childs:

In my twenty years as a midwife I have assisted and witnessed hundreds of beautiful births. I have also seen many women and their partners who are very afraid of birth and the effects of that fear. I wanted to find a way for women to learn about the resources they have within them, to help them understand what a wonderful and transformative experience birth can be. I studied Masters in Midwifery and taught antenatal classes for some time, but did not feel satisfied that the classes truly connected women and their partners with their inner potential. The classes mostly only looked at what was happening in the outside world and although worthy, did not address what was happening and could happen internally. Calmbirth is a wonderfully practical means to do just that. It shows you what you are capable of and gives you the tools to achieve whatever it is you wish for in birth. It is very simple and easy to understand and it serves the woman, her partner and the baby as a basis for the birth experience and for many years to come as a family. It evokes a positive birth experience, whatever road in birth you wish to travel. 

On arrival at the Hospital, enter at Gate 2 on Fox Valley Road (not the main hospital entrance).  At the boom gate at Gate 2 you’ll need to take a ticket for parking.  Parking for the day will be a flat rate of $15.00.

The venue is the Jacaranda Lodge. Once you enter Jacaranda Lodge, head a couple of metres down the hall where you’ll find the elevator on your right.  Come up the elevator to Level 1.  When stepping out of the elevator, the Rotary room will be on your left.
